This year, third graders will build a stronger understanding of division. This guided lesson uses the repeated subtraction strategy as a way of teaching division. The lesson shows how division problems can be solved by repeatedly subtracting the same number (the divisor). Not only does this help students solve division problems, but it also builds a conceptual understanding of division. For more practice, check out the suggested division worksheets.
Support your students' math fluency by teaching them about the relationship between multiplication and division through fact families. This lesson can stand alone or be used as a pre-lesson for the *Do You Know Your Math Facts?* lesson.
Improve your pattern-recognition and estimation skills as you practice multiplication and division. Children use techniques like breaking down numbers and fast addition to arrive at the correct answer — and to understand the concepts behind the process!
